BARREL TRANsPo-R'r- TRUCKV
Harold L. Anderson, Lincoln, Nebr.
Application March 28, 1938, Serial No. 198,533
2 Claims.
This invention relates to trucks of the type to extends through an -openingin the bight portion
be attached to certain articles such as barrels,
easily and expeditiously attached and removed
of `the body, asbest shown in Figure 2. The
cross member about the threaded opening thereof
is reinforced by a boss 1 formed on the undersur
face thereof.
The arms of the body have slots 8 extending
with respect to an article, but casual removal or
longitudinally therein and disposed diametrically
drums, boxes .and the like, -for transporting the
same, and its general object is to provide a caster
bearing truck of that character, which can be
displacement is practically impossible.
A further object is to provide a truck that will
10 take up minimum space, and will allow the article
to be evenly balanced and transported thereon,
with ease and minimum effort on the part of the
user.
Another object is to provide a truck that is
15 light in weight, yet is strong and sturdy to per
form its intended function without damage or
breakage thereof, is simple in construction, inex
pensive to manufacture, and extremely eflicient in
20
operation, use and service.
This invention also consists in certain other
features of construction and in the combination
and arrangement of the several parts, to be here
inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom
panying drawing and specifically pointed out in
25 the appended claims.
In describing the invention in detail, reference
will be had to the accompanying drawing where
in like characters denote like or corresponding
parts throughout the several views, and in which:
30
Figure l is a rear view of the truck which forms
the subject matter of the present invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view taken there
through and illustrates the same applied to a
metallic drum or the like.
35
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken approximately
on line 3-3 of Figure 2, looking in the direction
of the arrows.
Referring to the drawing in detail, the ‘letter A
indicates a metallic drum, barrel or the like, and
B the end rib or bead, and while I have illus
trated my truck as being attached to an article
of that character, it will of course be understood
that it can be used with any type of article that
includes a rib or bead, as shown.
45
The truck includes a base plate I which has
formed thereon and rising therefrom the arms 2
of an inverted substantially U-shaped body 3, and
the arms thereof are preferably disposed in con
verging relation with respect to each other, from
50 their connection with the base plate, as best
shown in Figure 1.
Formed on the arms at 4 and bridging the
same is a cross member 5 having a threaded open
ing therein centrally thereof adjacent its rear
55 edge to threadedly receive a thumb screw 6 which
opposite each other for the purpose of receiving
the end portions of a pivot pin 9 of the lock plate
I0 which is of angle formation to provide a rear 10
Wardly directed tongue I I for disposal in the path
of the lower end of the thumb screw for the latter
to bear thereagainst, as shown, and a forwardly
and downwardly inclined tongue I2 which is en
gageable with the outer flange of the rib or bead 15
B, for locking the truck with respect to the barrel
or the like, as clearly shown in Figure 2, it being
obvious that the thumb screw bears against the
tongue II and holds the tongue I2 in bearing en
gagement with the rib flange.
The base plate I is of a length to extend beyond
the body, for disposal below the drum or the like,
and formed on or otherwise secured to the ex
tending portion I3 for disposal forwardly thereof
is a supporting lug I4 of substantially T-shape 25
formation, in that it includes a ilange head I5 on
the outer end thereof to bear against the bottom
of the drum.
Riveted or otherwise secured to the base plate I
is a caster that includes an upper plate I6 and a 30
yoke I‘I journaled thereto by a stud I8 and having
a disk shaped upper portion I9 which together
with the upper plate I6, have annular grooves
therein providing a race for balls 20, and the arms
of the yoke have a wheel 2| journaled between 35
the same, as shown.
The forward portions of the arms 2 are pref
erably reduced as at 22, so that the upper por
tions of the arms and the bight portion thereof
are disposed in bearing association with the 40
drum, to materially relieve strain on the lock
plate.
From the above description and disclosure of
the drawing, it will be obvious that I have pro
vided a truck which can be readily applied and 45
removed with respect to a drum or the like, and
when applied thereto, the rib or bead B is dis
posed between the body and the rear end of the
supporting lug I4, with the upper portion of the
body bearing against the vertical wall of the 50
drum, the tongue I2 against the bead, and the
head I5 against the bottom of the drum. When
transporting heavy articles such 'as ñlled drums',
it is not necessary to use the lock plate, as the
weight of the article will prevent casual removal 55

slots, said lock plate being engageable with the
or displacement of the truck. However, the lock
plate can be readily applied in position for use,
merely by the use of the thumb screw, as will be
apparent.
'
article and a thumb screw mounted in the body
and engaged with the lock plate for holding the
latter in operative position for securing the truck
to the article.
2. An article transporting truck comprising a
base, an inverted substantially U-shaped body
'
It is thought from the foregoing description
that the advantages and novel features of the in
vention will be readily apparent.
It is to be- understood that changes may be
formed on and rising from the base and having
diametrically opposed slots in the arms thereof,
made in the construction and in the combination
10
and arrangement ofthe several parts, vprovided
that such changes fall Within the scope of„the
appended claims.
What I claim is:
¿I
L ~.
v
a substantially T-shaped supporting lug extend 10
ing forwardly from the base and spaced from the
body to receive a portion of the article between
¿'¿the same and for the article to rest upon the lug,
a caster secured to the base, an angle lock plate
disposed between the arms, a pivot pin for the 15
lock plate and mounted in the slots, one angle
portion of the lock plate being engageable with
1. An article transporting truck comprising a
base, an inverted substantially U-'shaped «body
formed on and rising from the base and having
diametrically opposed slots in the a'rms'thereof, a
headed supporting lug extendinglforwardly from the article, and a thumb screw threadedly mount
the base and spaced from the body to lreceive ak ed in the body and engageable with the other an
portion of the article between the saniëand forAv gle portion of the lock plate for holding the latter 20
the article to rest >upon the lug, a caster secured in operative position for securing thetruck to
to the base, a lock plate pivoted between the arms
and having therpivots thereof mounted in the
the article.
